The Haunted GirlNew

by Lisa M. Bradley

$12.00 $9.00 (paperback)

The supernatural, the animal, and the deadly often find each other in Lisa M. Bradley's landscapes, tame or wild. Vampires, either restless or filled with ennui; shape-shifters and skin-walkers; demigoddesses of evil and lust; haunted girls and dying fairies—the characters in this collection inhabit worlds of danger, decay, and, sometimes, rebirth.

The Stone BoatmenNew

"...a powerfully original first novel"
   — Faren Miller, Locus, April 2014

"To read The Stone Boatmen is to find yourself in a country a long, long way from home, taken on a unforeseeable journey—and when it's over, you wish you were still there."
   — Ursula K. Le Guin

The WisCon Chronicles, Vol 8

The WisCon Chronicles, Vol 8* New

edited by Rebecca J. Holden

$15.00 (trade paperback)

WisCon is filled with strong opinions and loud voices. Central to any discussion about definitions of feminisms are questions about outsiders and insiders: Who is WisCon? Who is feminist? Whose opinion matters? Whose voice is heard? Who counts? Who belongs to which generation and does that matter? What does WisCon mean now? What will it mean for future generations? This year’s volume of The WisCon Chronicles collects stories, poems, essays, blogs, and speeches that explore these questions within the framework of the feminism(s) of WisCon spanning “waves,” generations, and media.

*Publication of this book was partially supported by a grant from the Society for the Furtherance & Study of Fantasy & Science Fiction (SF3).
